Sept 2019 – Dinner Meeting

The Key Points of Storytelling

The good news is storytelling is a skill which means anyone can learn how to tell great stories, even you! And a great story can change everything. It can reframe you in the eyes of your prospect from a salesperson to a trusted expert and problem-solver.
Systematically developing your ability to communicate with an audience of any size from 1 to 1,000 will significantly improve every aspect of your communication. Being able to stand up and speak calmly and comfortably and clearly will also set you apart as a leader – even if you are only speaking for a few minutes. People who can stand up and speak in front of others look like leaders.
And it’s much easier than you might think at first. Join us on Wed Sept 25th as Lorna Weston-Smyth, an Executive Director and Faculty member of the John Maxwell Team, walks us through some key points that will make your storytelling for business much easier.
We invite you to engage and share your ideas, knowledge and talents with BPW Durham!
